In 1992, a group of Golden Retriever enthusiasts who had the foresight to see the need for rehoming unwanted Golden Retrievers incorporated Golden Retrievers In Need Rescue service as a 501C3 non-profit organization.  They were truly the forerunners of rescue since back in the ‘90’s, rescue was not a common practice.  We are excited to share that 2017 marks GRIN’s 25th year of rescue; saving well over 3,000 homeless Goldens.  

Marking 25 years is a milestone which everyone should be proud of.  Together, we can do anything and we do!  

We will be celebrating our 25th anniversary in a variety of ways from a very special Golden Gala celebration you won’t want to miss, to custom anniversary bling to GRIN window clings and other anniversary memorabilia throughout 2017.

Golden Sponsorships - How you can help

We have many goldens in our program who are without sponsors and need your help and support. So many of these goldens have special medical needs and will be in our care longer than normal. If you are unable to be a foster, this is a way in which you can help a specific golden. Please take a minute to click on "Read More" and you may find a golden whose story touches your heart.

He is almost 8 years old.  The Read More
Operation Buckeye History and Background For hundreds of years, homeless dogs have been a part of the Turkish environment. Estimates for the numbers of street and shelter dogs in Istanbul alone vary greatly – anywhere from 50,000-100,000. Among these dogs, approximately 500-2000 are abandoned Golden Retrievers. A concerned American living in Istanbul noticed all the Goldens running the streets and in municipal shelters and contacted Adopt A Golden of Atlanta (AGA) Read More
If you are a GRIN member, you know we are always begging for fosters! The fact of the matter is that we have a terrific foster home base – but we always need more because unfortunately, more dogs need our help – the strays, owner relinquishments and shelter dogs. And we also are anticipating more Turkey dogs next month.   If you are a recent approved adopter, you can help us immediately! Read More

Fostering has been a wonderful experience for me, 12 years and 56 dogs later! I like being a step in the process of moving dogs into permanent, loving homes.
